Intimacy troubles


I've been seeing my boyfriend for about 3 months. Our relationship grew mutually out of a just kinda happened. I care about him a lot and our relationship feels so refreshing and different from the past jerks I've seen. I would say it's love...

...but Ive noticed that I can't get turned on when we're messing around. In fact, it's hard for me to know when I get turned on around him. It's very frustrating for me because I want to be intimate with him, but it's hard to do so when making out feels like you're just going through the motions. We haven't had sex or have talked about how we feel about it.

It's been so long since I've been serious and intimate with someone that I don't know what to do. Could it be a mental block on my end? Do we need to take things slow and ease into more intimate stuff? Or is it a sign of not being attracted to him? I'm all ears to any insight you can offer! 😊
